The flight was beautiful, but at the beginning the pilot said they would be telling some historical events and interesting facts about the Grand Canyon. They only made mention of one thing, where the Little Colorado joined the Colorado River.

The scenery was beautiful ! My 2 grandsons 13 and 17 took the trip with me. We thought our trip was book for 11:00 to 11:30. On arrival one hour early were told our trip was at 1:00 pm and we didn't take off until almost 2 pm. Having thought our trip was earlier we booked plans to be North of Las Vegas 4 hours by dinner time.
The pilot and co pilot scared both my grandsons by announcing we didn't have enough fuel for our trip, and we had to get fuel. Both boys are adventurous. We all fly several times a year. I was not real comfortable either. I also notices a couple other passengers appeared a little nervous . After about 3 minutes it was announced we were taking off. There was no farther explanation about the low fuel.
Needless to say I spent most of the trip trying to reassure my grandsons everything was alright or we would have not taking off.
The personal should not make announcements and then change with out explanation.
Our trip was book way in advanced. In hindsight I should have ask the pilot about why we did not get fuel. I was 3 rows behind the cockpit.

Absolutely worth it!! Have to see the Grand Canyon from the sky. A must do. In our ride, passengers on the left side of the airplane did get a better view than the ones who looked out from the right windows...I do not know if depending on the wind they switch direction of flight, but if they do not, make sure you get a place on the left hand side :

Our group of 4 adults took the Grand Canyon Airlines Landmarks tour which is a 45
minute Airplane tour. Fixed wing aircraft tours are roughly 1/2 the cost of Helicopter flights,

Anyone coming to the Grand Canyon needs to take a flight over and around
the Canyon so you can truly appreciate the grandeur and scale of this magnificent place.

The tour was narrated in multiple languages so you knew what you were looking at and the pilots were
terrific.
NOTE: Anyone taking any flight with any company who has the SLIGHTEST tendency to get airsickness
should take a non drowsy Dramamine rtablet an hour or so ahead of time as some slight turbulence is unavoidable.
Don't let this discourage you- the views are magnificent, it will just ensure that nothing mars your enjoyment.

We highly recommend this company and tour.

Our Pilot was adorable. However, it was difficult to get good pictures because of the airplane it's self. Always seem to be a wing or a bar in our picture. For actually flying over the Canyon and around, it was awesome.

I was glad that we chose the plane over the helicopter. Our pilot seemed genuinely interested in giving us a great experience by mentioning things to look for before the trip. I think her name was Taylor. She was from Texas. She also helped with pictures before and after the trip.

The tour itself takes you out over the grand canyon and the view is spectacular, however there is quite a bit of time when you have head phones on with nothing being said. At the beginning of the tour it indicated there would be pleasant music throughout and I we spent the majority of the time concerned we were missing the narrative piece of the tour vs focusing on the spectacular view.

The only other thing I would recommend is them advising that GPS does NOT work in the Grand Canyon our much of the surrounding area and providing good directions on how to get to the airport. We got lost and missed our first flight but the company was very kind and allowed us to take a later tour which we were able to make it there for.

Again the flight itself was lovely just the narrative could have been a bit more substantial and our travel to the airport would have been far less stressful if the directions had been provided or we had been advised NOT to use GPS to attempt to find it.

Las vistas son impresionantes, pero el servicio del personal solo es correcto, no es como en otros sitios donde te explican y se involucran. Te suben a la avioneta y solo te preguntan por el idioma que quieres poner en el audio, el cual está bastante obsoleto. Pero aun así merece la pena.
